Member School Participant: $300; Non-member School Participant: $400

Coaching is one of the most effective forms of professional growth for educators. In this course, participants will discover the power of instructional coaching framed by a relationship-based approach, explore different coaching models that allow for time and space to be redefined, and create a personalized coaching project relevant to their own work.

In the Week 1 Seminar, participants will explore why coaching is meaningful and create a coaching credo. Participants will then dive into several strands of coaching content more deeply with a focus on developing coaching stances, listening authentically, having better conversations, questioning that welcomes others to share, and creating online spaces for coaching.

In Week 2, participants will be ready to design a coaching project. With the support of a GOA learning design coach participants will create an relevant response to this question: How can elements of relationship-based coaching inform my work right now? Participants will leave with skills needed to become a more effective faculty leader and peer.

This course is primarily asynchronous, with one optional, recorded synchronous activity.


This course is for educators in any position at a school where faculty mentoring and leadership are part of your work (such as instructional coaches, department chairs, tech integrationists, and professional learning leaders).
